Product description

Inspired by a line of poetry from William Butler Yeats, this modern honeycomb lace stole is distinguished by rays of stockinette bursting from one corner.

Bristol Ivy is known for garments and accessories with innovative, geometric forms, such as Thorn (Wool People 4), Svalbard (Wool People 6), and Keel (Wool People 8). Now she gives us an inversion of the positive and negative space relationships often found in asymmetric shawls.

Gyre is worked entirely from charts in three skeins of Loft; choose a bright, fresh hue for the perfect summer accessory. The pattern includes a photo tutorial on the Russian Join, a technique that joins a new ball of yarn with no weaving of ends and without the thickening and stiffness of a spit splice.

  • Pattern Updates

    24 June 2015: Version 1.1

    • The stitch counts along the bottom of each chart accidentally skipped from 50 to 60 rather than 50 to 55, leading the remainder of the noted stitches to be off.  The chart and cast on numbers are correct, but were just mislabeled.  This has been corrected to reflect the actual stitch count.


    20 July 2015: Version 1.2

    • On Chart B, Row 22, Stitch 82 has been corrected to be a purl symbol (you will knit that stitch from the WS).
